Oct 12 @ 12:30 pm – Dec 14 @ 4:30 pm

FSU professor, Lilian Garcia-Roig, is a nationally recognized artist who has been the recipient of numerous major awards and fellowships. “My formal painting concerns have led me to use the conservative landscape as my subject and traditional plein-air painting as my process, in my attempts to reconcile the abstract nature of painting with its representational role. From a distance, I draw the viewer into what is first perceived as a dense but conventional space. Up close, however, the images break down; the lush, gestural paint marks, squeezed-out paint patches and areas of raw canvas help, instead, to reinforce the 2-D character of abstract painting as both an activity and an end-product.” – Lilian Garcia-Roig
Exhibit open October 12 through December 14.
Please visit the Gallery from 12:30 – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Gallery is closed during college holidays. Admission is free.

Ice water is served with lunch. An adjusted rate is not available should a camper choose to bring their own lunch for any reason.  MoLab strives to accommodate a wide range of dietary needs.

MoLab is dedicated to providing a safe and amicable environment for our campers.  We assume that all campers are attending camp because they want to be at Camp Spark. Should any irresolvable behavioral issues arise the parent/guardian will be contacted.  Following all reasonable recourse to correct the matter, MoLab reserves the right to request that the camper not be eligible to continue participation. In this event, parent/guardian will be asked to pick up the camper.
